If you are publishing an article in a scientific journal, the NIA communications team may partner with you to raise awareness of your study findings.

Vicky Cahan, Director of the NIA Office of Communications and Public Liaison, describes the importance of informing the American public about research discoveries funded by tax dollars. Her new blog post is up now: What's the story? Letting the media know about your research.

Not only does it make sense to report back to our investors, especially in times of restrained resources, but also, we’re required by law to do this. Did you know that the legislation that established the NIA mandates that we disseminate findings based on the research that we fund? So, please be in touch with us when you have a publication coming out.

The NIA blog publishes weekly with information on grants and funding policy, research priorities, scientific meetings, and topics of interest to researchers and others in the scientific community. Subscribe to get it weekly in your email inbox, or grab the RSS feed.
